So Sorry!

So sorry that it has been so long since you have heard from us on here.

We have been VERY busy, well I have been especially busy with school and such, which makes us all seem very busy. I am taking 3 courses which demand a ton of outside of class work. TV Production requires that we help with the broadcast of 7 athletic games, which means that I spend about 5 hours a week doing that. Also, I am in Radio Production, which means I have a radio shift, yes I am on the radio, that lasts 3 hours every Monday evening. And lastly, I have to participate on the Forensic's team. Thankfully, I am doing a Duo with one of my best friends from Campus. Him and I were in the school van at 6:00 AM on Saturday morning and were not home until after 11:00. YUCK!

Cody and Grace also have been busy. Cody just got home from hunting in South Dakota, a LONG awaited get away for him. He still THANKFULLY has a position at Schwan's...We certainly are blessed for that.

As for Grace, she has been busy developing quite the little attitude! Also, busy reading books, learning to run faster and faster each day. She is quite the character and keeps everyone on their toes, and gets us into bed early every night.

A couple exciting things from our world :
- Cory Ann, our photographer for the wedding, PROMPLY delivered our HUGE print that we ordered, it's GORGEOUS. Also , along with it she send a CD of images that we are able to share with you.
- I have uploaded a few select photos from her to the Hy-Vee website, and have 2 separate albums of pictures. One has many pictures from the day, and the second is dedicated to guest pictures with some awesome photos of many of you. Hy-Vee allows for in store pick up if you have a Hy-Vee near you, or they also can be shipped directly to you.

Grace's One Year Photos

Here are a few of the photos that we had taken from Grace's one year. They didn't turn out the best, she was crabby, and when we left Willmar a rash appeared all over her body....might explain the crabby-ness. We might be getting more pictures taken of her again by a friend of ours in the early fall.

We are so excited to see our wedding photos, I know I keep saying that they will be coming soon, but they are ! We hope!

School starts on Monday for me, along with that comes an internship and a busy schedule for all of us. We cannot believe that summer has FLOWN by so quickly. It was certainly a summer filled with great memories.

1st Birthday

on the Sunday before Grace's party, we had birthday cake, wait, it was actually left over wedding cake...I guess she didn't know the difference.

My grandma bierman made her a quilt for her big girl bed she will be in someday, mommy and daddy gave her lots of books and toys, grandma and grandpa sent cute new fall clothes, Auntie Ashley gave her a bubble machine, Elyse gave Grace a puppy and a new book, great-richter grandparents gave grace a night-night dolly, markel gave her a new outfit nana and poppa gave grace a table and chair set for her new room, (perfect for tea parties), Thank you to everyone for the gifts!

Getting Ready

Here, Grace has her birthday suit on about a week before her birthday.

4th of July

For the 4th of July Grandma and Grandpa Richter came for a visit... We played outside in the pool....She didn't get to see the fireworks though...maybe next year!


So Grace loves yogurt puffs ... this is what happens when she gets carried away!

Willy Wilcox and I , guess if there is no photo of Amanda and I , this will do!

The garter toss.....Dan was quite the MAN!

Grace and Elyse at gift opening, Grace LOVED Elyse, I hope that Elyse was tolerant enough of her. It was quite funny because Elyse was walking around, and Grace was not yet walking, but thought that Elyse was a "walking tool".....Too cute together. I didn't put any photos of Ava up yet, but she is quite adorable and they will certainly be quite the circus soon, and I am sure that big sis Briann will be a great ring leader!

Well there are some more photos to keep you all satisfied. Make sure that you page over to older posts because this will take up a lot of space I am sure.

Until later!

It's been awhile!

Wow , it has been over a month since my last post...YIKES...

I guess I got pretty wrapped up in all of the wedding planning. We had a GREAT time...there were so many friends and family memebers that came to celebrate with us, we could not have asked for a better day. We want to thank all of you who helped us out over the weekend. We appreciate it so much.

Here are a couple of photos that we can share with you. Check back soon, there will be some photos of Gracie Girl, and also I am sure our photographer is working hard on our photos! I'll post the link to preview those when she is done with them.

Here are some photos to keep you happy for now!

This is my friend Scotty from college and I:

Cody's Uncle Murray and Aunt Tina Richter, what a blessing they are, they were wonderful hosts and hostess!

Our first dance as Mr.& Mrs. Richter!

My wonderful aunts and mother, a big HUGE thankyou for all of your hard work and love.

Eating dinner:

Cute ! Thanks for this photo Emily T.!

Gracie girl and I, she was not the happiest baby that night...She really didn't even want me which is very unlike her!

Uh - Oh is right !

Yikes, what a mess !

Oh,well no better reason for a long bath!


Puppies, yes LOTS of puppies...A momma lab had 13 pups about 2 miles away from our Dad HAD to see them. They are so cute, they are all either chocolate or black, and both Cody and my Dad were in their GLORY.

However, Cody does not have room for a lab in our town house, and my parents still have Brook, who has felt quite sorrowful since Grace took over the place. So, no puppy for us, but they were sure cute!

P.S. For all you Marshall High School people, the daddy of the puppies is Todd VanLeuwe's dog...

Happy Father's Day!

Well, although these are all slightly late, I thought that I would put them in order of occurance anyway....

Father's Day amounted to be a very beautiful day, with not much to do. I felt much better than I did on Mother's Day when I unfortunately had the flu. So Grace, Cody, and I decided to head to the park and enjoy ourselves, until we nearly got decked in the head by near by kite flyers that happened to invade our space!

This photo is of Grace's FAVORITE cup from her Aunties Kitsi & Jaci, she is SO SERIOUS about this thing, it is HILARIOUS .... CUTIE
